and, can i use a song if i credit the artist? (i always give credit to the artists).

If a song is famous, you most likely can't use it. Most established musicians have signed deals with licensing agencies and even if the bands themselves are totally cool with hobbyists on the web using their work in their cartoons, the licensing agencies aren't.

i am honestly very sad with this stupid law, because it limits the sources of funny/creative use of music in a movie...
i mean, for example, how can i emphasize a character's badass quality, when i can no longer play ''bad to the bone'' in my movie?

Think of this as an opportunity for us to have our generation's Bad to the Bone. Someone out there is making music and hoping to get noticed - you could give them their big break.

First credit the musicians or individual songs via the credits form, then visit the revenue sharing form to set their share of revenue. This will be combined as a single form when the project system switches to the new layout.

Hm, whenever copyright is mentioned around here, it's always concerning music. In Project System, there's a red notice and three different ways to credit musicians (as team members, audio credits or additional audio). I understand why – but what about other kinds of media? I honestly don't believe everybody properly credits artists if they use their CC-BY sprites, background images, textures, models etc. I'm not saying there should be more control, no – but it might help to at least have the option to credit them in Project System.
To credit those "non-musicians" (provided they don't have a NG account), you can currently only add link to their website in description or in the submission itself – but why, when there's already a perfectly fine sidebar with Credits right next to the game window?

What would you want from the NG store? DVDs that are over 10 years old? I dont understand.
sharkrobot is still selling t-shirts http://sharkrobot.com/collections/newgrounds . Thats about it.
I dont want to knock the idea of the store, but I mean really?

Really?

Maybe if a video app ever gets launched, it could use your rating preferences to filter the content you want?

Huh. Wonder if instagram was affected. Some guy from Russia tried to log into my account. I wish there was a setting to only allow logins from a certain geographical area -- except it would just show up as an incorrect password and send me an email about it.

That Global Audio License feature is really handy. I've recently used it and it works very fast as well. It's good to set a particular license these days, especially with how much music is being stolen or used without the Artists consent, although there isn't much an indie musician can do to see if someone on the internet HAS used their music in their game or animation and advertised, there are so many loopholes and take downs notices don't always help, let alone FINDING the perpetrator, limited resources, don't have a big PR company backing you.

Still it's a welcome change.

I guess you're paying monthly? The badge should show up at the end of the year that way... assuming you get in all 12 payments. ;)
Correct!

I have my paypal set up to send a $15.00 payment every month, so I thought the badge woulda shown up already is all. I've already paid $30.00 for this year. (2017)

It's showing up as coming out on my credit card statement @TomFulp, so if it isn't showing up on my NG account, I'm blaming Russia.

You know you can mark adult content to not be seen right?

Sounds like it could be hardwired to award the badge after a certain amount of payments rather than a certain amount, though with monthly payments at their default price ($2.99) a yearly badge would be $36 sooo maybe just one more month before it pops up? Suppose the official answer will clear all theories though..

Interesting idea, though maybe difficult if you happen to have to travel, or use a VPN, or for some reason get perceived as being in a location other than the one you are in... and people could go via proxies to make it look like they're from another area than they are, too, though course if they don't know about the limitation that wouldn't be a problem...

IMO two-factor authorization seems like the best/easiest solution though. If all bigger sites could implement it, you could have phone-based verification for the most important accounts (like email), and then just email-based verification for everything else. Once per device so you don't have to keep doing it. Backup codes if for some reason something doesn't work. Seems pretty bulletproof.

It bases it on months vs how much you paid but it seems like it would be best to base it on hitting the $25 threshold - gonna see if that can get changed.

If anything, I'll pay another 20 bucks before the end of the year so I can get my badge. I do the 15 a month just because that's all that's in my budget at the moment (Times are tough yo. ), and by the end of the year, I'll have given over 100 bucks. That makes me feel warm inside.

But I am about to order a pizza.

It's already amazing that you're doing $15 per month, THANK YOU! We're looking at changing the system now so it will base it on hitting the $25 threshold vs requiring 12 months.
